I think people are always looking for a transcendent experience, and when perfume is exceptional, it does offer that. I know of a man who argued that hurricanes can actually make people feel good. The idea is that they lift people out of an everyday malaise; a free-floating despair associated with the feeling that you’re not a part of the world or connected to the people in it. I think perfume has an oddly similar effect; it lifts people out of their mundane existence and it shows them a glimpse of another world; another place or time. It makes us feel something we have long forgotten, and it makes us dream again. There’s a lot of fragmentation and alienation in the modern world. I think that’s why so many of us are reconnecting with the earth in various ways. There’s a subconscious desire to gain what’s been lost.
